NIMISHILLEN TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A Canton man died in a crash in Nimishillen Township Monday night, highway patrol said.

Donald Lewers Jr., 19, was headed west on U.S. Route 62 (Atlantic Boulevard NE), just west of Nickel Plate Street at about 8 p.m. when he lost control of his car and went off the left side of the road. He went through the grass median and into the eastbound lanes, where an oncoming car stuck his car on the passenger side.

Lewers was taken to Aultman Hospital with life threatening injuries, where he later died.

The driver of the other car, Andrew Mooney, 26, was taken to Mercy Hospital with serious injures. He is expected to survive.

Investigators do not yet know if alcohol was a factor. Lewers was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, but Mooney was.

The crash remains under investigation.
